I had a friend with a triple engine 45 with some pretty big motors. They couldn't get it to run more than 95 mph in between drive breakage.

Those Seateks have a great power-to-weight ratio and have done well in offshore racing when Fabio Buzzi was running them. The price tag on those engines was outrageous for the 1980s, but are in line now I bet.

The strange thing is that the pics look similar to what I remember. I wonder if they sold it to this broker. Honestly, 250k is a steal, unfortunately the boat has been for sale for a very long time.
It would have helped if someone had ever even cleaned the interior of the boat. I saw it several times last year at Sonic. It looked 100 years old it was so dirty inside.
